I agree completely with the need for variety in exercise. Personally, I've developed a lot of friends in (and loyalty toward) the zumba class/instructor I've been involved with since August. So, I felt a little guilty when I started to get bored and feel like skipping it. I had to tell myself that:
1) there are plenty of people that don't go to the class every session, and they don't feel guilty about it and
2) as long as I PARTICIPATE in fitness on a regular basis, it doesn't matter what I do or where.
Once I gave myself permission to try something new, I found a bellydancing class that I'm really excited about (and I'm still going to zumba on the weekends!).
